    Very disappointing based on how it is shown online, absolutely fine for a stop off drink but not somewhere you would be keen to book in to not miss. The photos online are clearly taken from one corner. Expected to be in a lovely garden but instead were in an outdoor area at the side of a building which is under an escalator.

    I made the mistake of ordering spirits at this bar. £32 for a single gin and tonic and a single gin and soda. Completely extortionate. And service was very slow.

    Don’t be fooled that this bar is even remotely connected to the shard. It is tiny. On the ground floor. Has no atmosphere and certainly no view. The staff attire looks pretty casual and the drinks are raving expensive. Overall it’s a tourist trap I fell into. Won’t be doing it again.

    Drinks were nice but expensive! Service was poor, wrong mixer twice - still charged extra for service. We were given a table under the stairs in the shade despite booking for a birthday celebration. Asked to pay for drinks before receiving the correct ones and change was brought just before we were leaving. Both the waiter and waitress who served us were unfriendly. Wouldn’t go again. Table and service so poor we ate elsewhere!

    Of the different places to eat at The Shard, this is the most affordable. Note that the bar is on the ground floor, so no views across London from this bar. Drinks were to a high standard and served quickly and efficiently. We shared a platter which was varied and plentiful. We wrapped up the meal with a bowl of fries, which was plentiful and supported by a sprinkling of parmesan and a truffle mayonnaise. Overall, a great experience but slightly disappointed by the ground floor location.

    Bar31 is not what it appears to be on the internet. Firstly it’s on the ground floor. Its more like a café serving alcohol than a bar. We did go there during the day so it may be different later. Food/drinks were expensive, no atmosphere, uncomfortable tables. From what I understand it is in no way connected to the Shangri la Hotel therefore no remotely luxurious.

    One assumed Bar 31 was on the 31st floor of the Shard. My mistake. Was on ground floor tucked around the side, seats uncomfortable, table dirty and music was too loud to have a conversation. Conclusion - never return.
